Over the years Darra has published widely on food, literature, culture, and art. Her numerous recipe books explore the true heart of Russian food, a cuisine that celebrates whole grains, preserved and fermented foods, and straightforward but robust flavors. Her recipes showcase Russian foods that are organic and honest—many of them old dishes that feel new again in their elegant minimalism.
